THE FIELD HOUSE.



blackbird's new pop-up shop, the fieldhouse, looks pretty impeccable. i'm also very much into their idea behind the shop -

"the field house is reminiscent of general stores that were once at the heart of rural towns across america. its shelves are stocked with a wide variety of merchandise, including classic work wear, vintage goods, basic groceries and candies, flowers, and perfumes and candles. it captures the history, geography, and folklore of times past, when goods were less disposable and had more meaning, a time when people canned their own food and took a moment to converse with strangers."

Just heard about the Field House recently. I'm so glad to see this concept being done again! A lot of college towns had stores like this in the 70s. Great, well made basic stuff without pretension.
